A COMMEMORATION service for the 68th Anniversary of Victory over Japan Day (VJ Day) will take place at the Nicholson War Memorial, Leek, at 11am on Thursday, August 15.

 

The Royal British Legion will hold a brief ceremony and lay wreaths in memory of the fallen. VJ Day marked the end of the Second World War after the fall of Japan.

The Legion is encouraging the public to spare a few minutes to attend and remember all those whose lives were affected by six years of war.
